Fall Orientation Dates

All new undergraduate students are required to attend orientation, spend the night and to remain on campus throughout the entire program.

You’ll be allowed to attend only the orientation programs that are available to you via the MyNIU system. Advising for some majors and colleges is not available for all programs. Orientation programs do fill quickly and space is limited—so register today! Please note, we do not have a waitlist for orientation programs.

If you’ve changed your major since you’ve applied to NIU, please make sure you fill out a change your major form. After you submit your form, you’ll receive confirmation of this change within 48 hours. Please note: when you change your major, you may have to change your orientation date. If this happens, staff will contact you to reschedule.
